    Hey all.

    I'm just about to start running an elven campaign.
    Has anyone done this before? Most of the players
    are going to play human-hating warrior-types and
    the domain sourcebook for Tuariheval seems to be
    orientated towards those playing elves favourably
    inclined to humans.

    I'm interested in getting into touch with anyone
    who has run a similar campaign. Has anybody
    done it?

    I'm sorry but I can't help you that much, I've never run an Elven
    campaign. However, I do have some comments about the Tuarhievel
    source book- I really didn't like what the authors did to
    Tuarhievel. SPOILER ALERT. One of the last Elven realms, and they
    go and make it be ruled by a human who is going to hand it over
    to a half-elf!!!!! This really struck a sour note for me. I
    really liked Tuarhievel and was excited when I found the book,
    but this pretty much ruined it for me. Why couldn't have the
    authors done what was done for the Roesone sourcebook: write it
    as your the new regent who's parent has just died and is
    overviewing the realm? Why change what was otherwise such a great
    domain. Did anyone else have problems with the Tuarhieval
    Player's Secrets or is it just me. I liked the overview, but its
    so oriented towards the current politics that it really makes it
    hard to use alot of it without going through some major rewrites
    in areas. Lots of time is spent dealing with the situation
    presented in the guide when it seems to me most rulers would want
    to elves ruling an elven realm, and so would have different
    problems. Thoughts, comments (flames)?

    I agree with your comments totally. Quite frankly the domain
    sourcebook completely negates the Ruins of Empire description.

    A land of contradiction. A ruler who holds court with both
    humans and fanatic killers. Not any more!

    Now the ruler is completely pro-human and the fanatics have
    been relegated to positions of NO power. I'm going to make
    Savanna involved in a secret plot with the Gorgon to remove
    Fhil. and place herself on the throne.

    Her child is actually child of the Gorgon? Ergh. Random thoughts
    keep slipping in. I want to keep Tara because I think she is very cool.

    I cannot see anyone dying to play a human ruling one of the only three
    elven domains in Anuire. They should have left an accounting of the
    domain's ownings followed by a description of the politics.

    I think the politics should have been left murky so that players could
    choose to play human-hating or human-loving characters. A LOT of
    revision is needed to play a character coming from the human-hating
    region.

    God, just typing what was meant to be an agreement (and branched
    off briefly into plot) really gets my creative juices flowing. I'm
    going off to work on some ideas now.

    Basically I just wanted to say that I agreed :)

    It's not just you; from my experiences with other "Player's Secrets of..."
    titles, I didn't think I would like it, so I didn't buy it. The Tuarhieval
    book has come up before, quite a while back, and the discontent was pretty
    overwhelming then.
